Students at Safe Zone event

Welcome to Diversity Programming

Under the division of Student Affairs, the Office of Diversity Programming at Fort Lewis College brings together two groups and four celebration days/months.  The common goal of the groups and events is to make the college a safe and inclusive place for everyone and to both understand and celebrate the diversity of our community.

Currently under the Diversity Programming umbrella are Safe Zone (a program for LGBT awareness and support), Common Ground (an anti-bias and anti-discrimination educational program), Martin Luther King Day programming, Women’s History Month programs, Real History of the Americas Day (on Indigenous Peoples Day), and Veterans Day.
